Steve Ott Suspended

March 11, 2008

Yep, for 3 games for his hit on Leopold Saturday.

Here is the video (it’s not the fight, but they show the actual hit)

Otter is not a dirty player, he just has a dirty mouth.  It is really unfortunate that Leopold got hurt.  I think one game would’ve been enough for a first-time offender, since it seems he briefly left his feet.  I do not, however, believe that Ott intended to injure Leopold, it’s just that Leopold bending over put Ott’s shoulder and arm right by his head.  To me (though I could be biased and I’m trying not to be now that I’m over my original anger) it doesn’t look like Otter wasn’t aiming at his head.

Oh, and San Jose is now top of the Division.

The better news is that the Tampa Bay Lightning won tonight against the New York Islanders. Halpie had 3 points (a goal and 2 assists) and Jussi had an assist. Yay boys!!
